The idea for this card came to me last night as I was trying to get to sleep, I should have gotten up and headed to the studio and got to work, as I didn’t sleep well anyways. I also knew I was going to pair up these TWO great challenges for this piece….Pink Power Diva Dare over at Verve and the Tag You’re it Challenge #8.
My mom was a Breast Cancer survivor for many years, so I try to make at least one card a year to commemorate her. Unfortunately later on in life she got Ovarian cancer and wasn’t as lucky to beat that battle. Love and miss you mom!
This afternoon when I was ready to get started I found another piece of my all time favorite DP and knew it would work perfectly! SCORE!!! Now I knew I wouldn’t fail! Onto some details: For this card I used my new favorite border die cut from Verve as well…love those hearts! It comes in a pack of 3 and it’s a must have…I linked it up for you. Next, the hearts and sentiment are also from Verve and come in the With Love Set. I used versa mark and stamped them on the background. The word HOPE is a die cut and is from Paper Smooches. I cut it out twice for a drop shadow. The striped paper is actually made with a piece of Washi tape. The sequins are also from Verve and the small hearts are from the inside of the die cut. The basic tag was made with the SU punch and lots of paper piecing, which is what I love to do!
I so appreciate you stopping in and your words of encouragement! Hope you have a wonderful day and I have inspired you a little bit!
